Are you looking for a way to attend to all your shopping needs and enjoy yourself at the same time? Put the ‘Tis the Season fundraiser for Suicide Prevention and Crisis Services of Yolo County on your holiday schedule.

The event — which features hearty appetizers and sweet treats along with nearly 150 silent auction and raffle items — will run from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1, at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis. Tickets are $25.

Winning bids will transport guests to Monterey, Sonora, Calistoga, Disneyland or Lake Tahoe, where they can enjoy a getaway with their hand-knit scarves packed in their new travel bag. Upon returning home, they can indulge in a catered dinner or a 20-pound prepared turkey while sipping a variety of wines from their newly won handmade wine rack.

After dessert from Konditorei Austrian Bakery and a wide selection of Chinese teas, they and their friends can enjoy performances at the Mondavi Center or the B Street Theatre in Sacramento, or a Sacramento Kings game.

The baby-sitter will keep the children happy with a wide range of toys, puzzles and games, or tossing around a signed 49er football while the baby is sleeping soundly tucked in her handmade quilt. As the evening winds down, these lucky guests can read a chapter or two to the children from the complete Harry Potter series, then enjoy a leisurely bath with one of the many spa baskets. Curling up in their zebra throw, they will now have time to catch up on the wide selection of novels they won.

The next morning, after checking the temperature on their new wireless weather center, the winners can play a round of golf for four at El Macero Country Club, then head to SkyDance SkyDiving for a tandem free-fall jump. After lessons at Swim America and rappelling at Rocknasium, they can take the kids to the Esquire IMAX Theatre in Sacramento and then lunch at Woodstock’s, Bistro 33 or Round Table Pizza.

Then, it’s time to head off to the European Wax Center, get a haircut at Salon Jewel or Sport Clips and then finish the day shopping at Panera Bread, Noah’s Bagels or Trader Joe’s, or using gift cards from Costco, Nugget Market, Big 5 Sporting Goods and more.

“If all this tires you out, just relax at home sipping on tea from Starbucks while adding photos to your digital image talking album or reading recipes from your various cooking baskets,” a news release said.

Tickets are on sale at Armadillo Music, 205 F St.; online at SuicidePreventionYoloCounty.org; or by phone at 530-756-7542.
